Tension between religious communities is escalating in Karnataka like a chain reaction. At first, it was the veil, then the saffron shawl, the temple trade and the sale of mangoes. During these times of testing, glimmers of positivity and hope have emerged in the Chamaraganagar district.

Rehman from Chikkahole in Chamarajanagar District is a retired gate operator in the Chikkahole Reservoir. In 2018, a few months before his retirement, a statue of Ganesha was lost from a small temple nearby. Rahman had seen the temple and the idol for years since he was close to the reservoir where he was working.

The police and people searched for the idol but it was never found. One night, Rahman had a strange dream in which Lord Ganesha appeared before him and ordered him to build a temple. Amazed, wake up. Somehow, he wasn’t able to shrug the dream off his head.

He retired soon after and used his retirement and bonus amount and built a small Ganesha temple in the same village but in a different location.

“I retired in 2018 and Ganesha came into my life then. Just like God to us, Ganesha to others. Everyone’s blood is red, I don’t understand the difference here,” Rahman said after visiting the temple.

He has appointed a Hindu priest to perform the daily puja and rituals and pays him a stipend of Rs 4,000 from his pension.
